College of The Albemarle practical nursing Class of 2021 celebrated with pinning ceremony

College of The Albemarle (COA) hosted its Class of 2021 Practical Nursing Pinning on July 28, 2021.

“COA faculty and staff wanted to ensure graduates experienced a traditional ceremony with their families to share in on their achievement. Social distancing measures were put into place in order to host this event,” stated a COA press release. “The pinning was very special as each graduate had the opportunity to personally thank their family, friends, instructors and classmates.”

Special recognition was given to Audrea Pevey for receiving the Academic Excellence Award along with Victoria Rose for receiving the Program Distinction Award.

Allison Son received the Mildred W. Moore Nursing Excellence Award. This honor was voted on by both COA faculty and classmates. Son received this honor and was able to hear some of the comments shared by her peers through their nominations.

Robin Harris, dean of health sciences and wellness program, acknowledged the class officers – President Audrea Pevey, Treasurer Allison Son and Secretary Jessica Hoffman – for their service. She also thanked her team for making the necessary changes to adapt their instruction to the “new norm” COVID-19 presented and the dedication put into the work behind this transition.

The fifteen graduates make up COA’s 44th annual class however, that predates the program coming over from the hospital in 1963, which would actually make this the 58th practical nursing program in this region’s history. “The 2021 graduating class was made up of students from the college’s seven county service area and truly represents the region in which these graduates will go on to serve in their profession,” stated the release.
